It’s a new year that’s a-comin’, everyone. And here’s a preview of some of the many great things which are…
This is a stream-of-conscious, pretty random and idiosyncratic list of upcoming (non-MWC) events, commentary, musings...which you might be interested in. It will be updated on an as-needed basis with the most recent addition being the first one that you see.
MAR -2016: Holy smokes - it's going up to the mid-70's today in a wonderful, early break-out Spring day. Will probably be gone by the time this is written - so take advantage of it. Or at least get yourself a new swimsuit! ... Ever wonder why there's a daffodil in the MWC logo? Click "FAQ" on the menu ribbon and find out. .... Coming late to the Pentatonix Party? This five person a cappella group from Texas, with their super-tight harmonies and winning mix of easy listening, beatboxing and strong basslines is just heaven.

Want a way to tap into the interests and expertise of about 2000 really smart people from all over the world who are thinking about stuff you never get to - this is your newsletter. ... The OCULUS Shopping Mall (oooops ... Path Station!) isn't quite open yet but you can sort-of sneak in early via some barely identified doors in 4 World Trade Center It IS exciting to see this Calatrava boondoggle from the inside; just don't bump into all those people taking selfies in the photogenic interior. ... The MET Breuer (the old Whitney on Madison at 75th) opens on March 18th - you might want to go twice; once for the "Unfinished" opening exhibit but also to see the building brought back to its original 1966 Breuer splendor.
